space restriction (negative space in use)

I have NW6.0 SP4 and have space restriction enabled on NSS volume.  The
"space in use column" show negative numbers, any ideas how to fix this
issue?  Thanks.

This TID takes me to 
http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/netware/qna/nss.html

There is a link "Wierd NSS Stats" which tells me to click on a link to
10074366.  That link tells me:

The document /10074366.htm is no longer available at support.novell.com
or has been updated in another document.

The TID was pulled because it was supposed to be incorrect. If you want to
try it anyway, here is the text:

Statistics on NSS volumes with compression enabled displays negative
values. Novell NetWare 6.0 Support Pack 1 & 2 Post Support Pack Nss Patch
When viewing volume statistics within NSS for user space restrictions,
compressed files, and remaining unused space the results can be erroneous
and will differ depending upon which utility is used. NWAdmin, NetWare
Remote Manager, and ConsoleOne, in some cases, have all reported different
statistics on NSS volumes. Some customers have reported volume statistics
indicating negative values for the amount of disk space available, or
negative amounts used and a valid size amount still available.
Deleted/salvageable files and purgeable space statistics has also
displayed a negative amount for the number of files/space in use. User
space restrictions and compression enabled on NW6 NSS volumes can
experience invalid statistics which result in users exceeding their actual
quota limits.
ex. Statistics report that -100MB has been used for a user who's quota is
10MB could result in that user having 110MB of usable disk space. (The
negative amount must be used first). The problem was introduced with the
released version of NW6 (FCS). This problem has been reported on installs
of NW6 with SP1 and SP2 as well (Overlay CD).
A fixed compression bug caused the negative values to exist. Although the
compression bug is fixed the negative values continue to be reported when
viewing statistics. User Space restrictions can be fixed by simply typing
at the console command NSS /NoUserSpaceRestrictions=SYS then press enter.
***Replace sys with YOUR volume name.***
Followed by NSS /UserSpaceRestrictions=SYS then press enter. This will
cause NSS to recalculate disk space usage for the users. The problem
should not reoccur.
The fix requires the latest NSS patch installed. Customers should run a
rebuild to address all other statistic issues on their affected NSS Pools.
An additional UserSpaceRestriction issue was fixed after the NW6NSS2C.EXE
patch found in the latest COMN.NSS dated at least Dec 17, 2002.

I just wanted to say that I have NW v6.5 SP1b installed and this (the 
two NSS commands) "fixed" my erroneous negative space reports.  JRBUtils 
was showing the same negative space and the fix cleared that up as well.

Did the commands preserve your space restrictions?
